We recently closed our £15 million Series A fundraise, led by Breega and Element Ventures and are backed by big-hitting investors, including the founders of Zoopla, ComplyAdvantage, Funding Circle, and many more. We already work with over 700 property and legal businesses to help streamline their processes and keep security top of mind, and we're growing. We're serious and we're ambitious. Come join us.
